SkyView Atlanta: 360° of Learning
At SkyView Atlanta, your class will fly 200 feet above the ground and learn along the way! Featuring 42 climate-controlled gondolas, SkyView Atlanta’s observation wheel soars almost 20 stories above Centennial Olympic Park. This spectacular panoramic view of Atlanta – and beyond - is unforgettable. Keep an eye out for Kennesaw Mountain, home to some of the early settlers of North Georgia, and Mercedes Benz Stadium, home to the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United.
A field trip to SkyView includes a behind-the-scenes tour with special attention to the physics, design, and geometry that make the observation wheel work. Your visit typically lasts about one hour, depending on the number of participants. We welcome student groups of 20-200+. SkyView field trips can be customized for any grade level, but work best with students in Grades 3-8. Please make your reservations on advance by using this form.
This spinning classroom is the ideal setting for your students to experience science, technology, art, engineering, and math in an engaging way that complements your daily instruction. Come to SkyView and take STEAM learning to new heights!
SkyView Curriculum Flies High
As a companion to your field trip experience, a comprehensive Study Guide for Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8 is available for you to download and use before and after your school visit. This Study Guide contains six interdisciplinary classroom lesson plans and project-based inquires; three for each level. The lesson plans begin with instruction pages for teachers including a list of the appropriate content areas and skills addressed by the activities in the lesson. Rounding out the lessons are ready-to-copy Student Activity pages that center on key STEAM topics featured during your class visit.
We know how important it is to justify field trips and document how instructional time is spent outside of your classroom. To that end, this Study Guide is directly correlated to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, the C3 Framework for Social Studies State Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards. Also included are the Georgia Standards of Excellence to assist with your planning needs. Please click here to download the Skyview Study Guide for your grade level.
